New Zombie Doll from Grimmleigh's Fiends!

Welcome to Monster Etsy everyone! I'm Leigh from Black Fez Studios. We make Grimmleigh's Fiends dolls, which you can find by clicking on the link to the right of your screen. We're just one of a bunch of really cool crafters on Etsy that have banded together to create a fun, and maybe even spooky, online shopping experience! I've been showing off my own wares the last few days, but I'll be back later to highlight some of the really cool shops you'll see when you check out all the sellers at Monster Etsy!

Yeah, he's a nudist zombie! Cute, cuddly, and hell bent on eating your brains. We were going to put some pants on the guy, but I remembered the streaker at Wimbeldon, and an idea formed!

New Produce of Peril at Black Fez Studios!

We've been having a ton of fun getting ready for Craft Lake City next week... If you live in the Salt Lake City area, you should come to the show! It's Saturday, August 8th at the Gallivan Center from 2pm-8pm. There will be live music, and all kinds of coolness!

We'll be debuting our new Grimmleigh's Fiends "dolls", the Produce of Peril! We wanted to offer something a little less pricey, but still have one of a kind items available. What do you think? We're kind of crazy about them!

All this and more at our Etsy shop... Stop by and drop a line, we love meeting new people!

Hello Everybody!

My name's Gretchen Lewis, and I'm new to Etsy and to this group. I'm a 19 year old student artist from a very small town where there's not much to do for a geek like myself but sit around and sew small ferocious creatures all day.

Stop in and check out my Critters!


Loverbot - Polymer Clay Robot Necklace/Pendant/Keychain Greenbot - Polymer Clay Robot Necklace/Pendant/Keychain

They each different in they're own unique way and are made from polymer clay :D
they can compliment your neck as a necklace, keychain or can even come custom as a pin for your jacket ;D

Have an idea for a custom robot? Convo me :D

What? We're Part of a Group?

Hey all!
Long time, no post. We've been busy as all get out for the last year trying to refine what we do, and when we finally got the hang of that, it's been non-stop production even since! We're getting ready for the first-ever alternative craft show in Salt Lake City!

Our monsters have taken on a real personality of their own... Between the veggies and the monsters, we're not sure who's going to eat us first! We're shooting for 100 monsters for the show... We're a little more than half way now!

Renegade San Francisco!

Before the crowds...

And after...

The San Francisco Renegade Craft Fair was a whole lotta fun! There were almost too many booths as it took about an hour to even sort of peruse half of it and even then I saw people with really cool stuff that I missed. I also met some great crafters from as far away as New York! As in Karen's monsters! Yay!
There were also a whole lotta people there, mostly on Saturday. Word of advice for future fairs: Show up right at opening time, there was barely anyone around until about 1.5 hours after it opened...

PS: that rockin' peacock feather dress is by Wear Yeti, whom I shared a booth with. Go check them out...

Introducing the ToothMonster

New from Cheryl's Creative Miscellany: The ToothMonster, a little pillow that eats children's teeth overnight and provides coins (or even folded bills) in the morning.

I was inspired by my daughter, who thinks the Tooth Fairy is creepy, to make the ToothMonster. She thinks he's creepy, too, but in a different way. I plan to make more ToothMonsters soon! [Shop Listing]

I've been working on some other little monsters, too -- keyfobs -- you can see some sneak peeks in my Flickr stream.
